Angel is released from juvenile detention, focused on avenging the unfortunate death of her loving mother. Soon she is able to reconnect with her younger sister Abby, a fast-talking child learning how to scam her way through a foster care system that is failing her. Abby and Angel embark on an intense yet loving road trip as they travel towards the place that holds their ultimate fate: their estranged father’s home. Acted with intense realism- a simple gesture speaking volumes- the two young female leads inhabit their roles with skill and nuance, incredible performances from actresses Dominique Fishback and Tatum Marilyn Hall. Directed by Jordana Spiro (OZARK’s Rachel) and Co-Written by Angelica Nwandu (founder of gossip site The Shade Room and foster care advocate), the film is a journey through a family’s haunting past and the unclear futures ahead.
